Depression is very common place and often does not have the same root. I help you discover the unique factors that are responsible for your own sense of inadequacy, hopelessness, low self-worth, or lack of interest and motivation. Rather than simply focusing on your symptoms or advocating the use of medication, I help you understand what is internal resources are blocked inside of you that stop you from living a more fulfilling life. I see depression not as a disorder or an illness, but as an invitation to examine your life and make changes that will get you more in line with your true feelings and desires.

If you find yourself with more than just occasional "blues," depression may be making you feel out-of-touch with life. If you have depression, it is important to remember that you are not your diagnosis. Depression is not all of who you are. You are so much more. Sometimes you are caught in depression because of the ways that you think and because you have limiting beliefs. Working together, we can challenge what holds you back and help you move forward again, with depression in the rear view mirror.

I remember hearing a professor share the difference between depression and other emotional states. She said that depression is similar to a deep, dark, hopeless pit. And sadly, many have and will experience this at some time in their lives. Many of the people who seek me out for treatment of depression are often experiencing a multitude of feelings which are difficult to express. When not expressed, the are held in and seem to 'grow', often overwhelming a person and leaving them uncertain of how to resolve it. I support my clients in finding ways to verbalize their emotions because I believe that this minimizes the power of the emotion. Shall we talk about the feeling of depression?

Life ofen throws us curve balls, and at times it can be overwhelming. Depression is a common symptom that occurs when life becomes too stressful. I help clients understand the relationships among thoughts, feelings and emotions, and how they impact depression. Once we understand the thoughts that are impacting your depression we can work on ways to challenge the destructive thoughts, and help you decrease your symptoms of depression. In addition we can work on ways to help you cope with some of the stressors that are occuring in your life.

Depression always has pervasive negative effects - many of which are not even recognized by yourself. In the graduate course on diagnosis, I teach students a mnemonic device for identifying depression: CASED PIGS. There are nine symptoms of a major depressive episode and you must meet at least 5 to meet the first of the criteria for such an episode. Depression, in the clinical sense, is connected to various diagnoses. While diagnosing is a starting point, long term or permanent relief is the obvious goal. Talk therapy can be a helpful augmentation to various forms of treatment. My goal for you is to live life with zest. I will humbly and respectfully challenge and encourage you.

Bad days come and go but they do not necessarily have to stay. When medication does not seem to be enough talking to someone can help. I have worked with many individuals that have struggle with depression and though the course of therapy have described a sensation of "fog" lifting. Depression has many origins, such as early childhood attachment or recent losses. It has been my experience that the most efficient way to come out of depression is to explore and understand one's symptoms.
